The famous Finnish manufacturer launched the revolutionary multifunctional sport watch that is able to work up to 50 hours in GPS mode, more than three times longer than the nearest concurrent. Combining navigation with performance-tracking functions, new Suunto Ambit GPS watch offers serious help to different kinds of outdoor athletes, explorers and adventurers.
Besides the GPS navigation system, Suunto Ambit provides a variety of features, such as speed and distance indicators, a heart rate monitor, a barometric altimeter, a 3-D compass, a thermometer and a track logging. What makes the Ambit unique on the market is its extraordinary battery life that opens it up to extended sport activities, from backcountry skiing, hiking, and mountain climbing to mountain biking and marathon running. It can also be used as a very helpful tool in exploring and mountaineering expeditions.
With Ambit’s full-featured GPS, you can choose waypoints and navigate your route to and from your location, in multiple coordinate systems. Along with this, the watch will constantly inform you about altitude and weather conditions, so that you can feel pretty safe in the wild nature, concentrating on the best performance.
Thanks to an integrated accelerometer, Suunto Ambit provides the information about speed and distance more accurately than watches that track these performances only by GPS. By using an altimeter, you can also track your vertical and climbing speed. Heart rate monitoring with the Peak Training Effect gives you highly useful guidelines about the optimum of your training, while the Recovery Time function estimates the ideal break time. You can upload all your dada for analysis on Suunto’s online community Movescount.com.
Besides its stunning functionality, the new Suunto Ambit GPS is the attractive and modern looking sport watch in a robust size, which is available in black or silver color. It can also be used for under-water activities, since it is resistant to water-pressure up to 100 meters (330 feet). This great timepiece will be available from March 2012. The expected price for the watch with the heart rate strap is $550 and without it, you will be able to buy it for $500. In both cases, you will get a PC data transfer and a charging cable.
